If you have a home, cabin, or business fueled by propane, you know how frustrating and expensive it can be when your propane pressure decreases in cold weather. No one wants the burden of having to constantly fill a tank in order to run your house, cabin, or business. If you have the right tools, you can enjoy propane efficiency year-round and avoid the pain of frequent refills. Powerblanket Lite gas cylinder warmers offer residential heating for your propane needs and will help with efficiency when temperatures decrease.
Propane tanks supply the best output when warm, whether it is the ambient temperature that is keeping your tank warm or an external heat source. Gas volume is determined by the number of molecule collisions occurring within the container, and these collisions increase as the temperature increases. Powerblanket Lite gas cylinder warmers afford you increased propane flow in mild weather conditions. In extreme cold, the Powerblanket energy will go towards heating the exterior of the tank in order to prevent as much heat loss as possible. Powerblanket Lite gas cylinder warmers will improve propane tank efficiency. Increase your gas mileage with Powerblanket Lite gas cylinder warmers.
